  • Your experience starts with a brief classroom orientation where you will learn about hang gliders and the basics of how they work.

    Then, it's over to the landing field for ground school. In ground school, you learn to lift the glider, how to hold it and how to move with the glider. After ground school, the only thing left is to do is fly!

    On the foot of the practice hill you will take your first steps toward getting off the ground. As the class moves on, you'll move higher up the hill and get progressively longer flights - up to 4 total.

    By the end of the day you will be looking back on one of the most fun and exhilarating experiences of your life.

    Your instructor has been hang gliding for over 20 years and competes nationally and internationally in cross country and speed gliding events and has organized regional and national competitions.

    He was elected Regional Director for the Texas and Louisiana USHGA chapter along with being a member of the USHGA board of directors for six years. You are in good hands!
